I just discovered this fantastic plant..
And I need one.

This is Solanum Pyracanthon(Or pyracanthus, or pyracanthum depending on who you ask) more commonly known as, The Porcupine Tomato.  The solanum family is home to a varied bunch, including (you guessed it) tomato, potato and nightshade.  As it’s relatives and those beautiful orange spines suggest, Pyracanthon and it’s adorable little fruit are very poisonous. So it’s grown for purely ornamental purposes.

Now who wants to buy me one?
